Inert Gas & CO2 Based Fire Suppression System

Inert Gas & CO2 Based Fire Suppression System

  • Ceasefire's Inert Gas System uses Inert gas or natural gases to extinguish fire. Often used as a blend of gases, these gaseous mixtures leave no residue behind and are designed to protect enclosures where there is a need for quick reaction to extinguish a fire. Once activated, the system dumps inert gases in the fire zone, bringing down the oxygen concentration below the fire threshold point. While the oxygen level is lowered, the system does not eliminate oxygen from the space altogether, leaving enough oxygen to support life but not fire!

    What gases are used?
    Inert gases are naturally occurring gases. Ceasefire's Inert Gas Suppression Systems use the following gases that reduce the concentration of Oxygen in the fire zone to kill fires.

    CF1: CO2 (100%)
    CF100: Nitrogen (100%)
    CF541: A blend of Nitrogen(50%) + Argon(40%) + C02(10%)
    CF01: Argon (100%)
    CF55: A mix of Argon(50%) + Nitrogen(50%)

    How is the Gas Deployed?
    The Ceasefire's Gaseous Fire Suppression systems can be configured for unique gas discharge options. Typically class "C" electrical fires require a minimum concentration while class "B" flammable liquid fires require a higher concentration or lowering of oxygen levels to put the fire out. Settling on the right approach depends on the type of environment in which the system will be used.
